I dont have a 2001 install handy, but Im almost positve that the config.pro option mdl_tree_cfg_file pointing to your tree file will do the trick. in model tree, save the setting to a file , and then set the above option to point to it including the path. also make the config.pro available in any of the standard load on launch locations.
Have you tried to create a local config.pro in the local start-up directory, with that option pointing to a tree.cfg file with a path that has no spaces in it; The option does work, and it is vaild in 2001 . Im making the assumption your using Windoze. It may be that that option doesnt like network paths/files and /or spaces in the filenames.
( Yes Dave J. Im thinking of PTC's/MS's horrid path with spaces issues)
and corrected here I stand... it works fine. Sorry, I just managed to put a typo into the path 8-(
No, fortunately I´m still on SGI´s IRIX ...and using XVM.
So I´ll never run out of drive letters - or disk space :-), since I can expand logical drives through adding physical ones, increase speed by having some disks accessed in parallel, or data integrity / safety through live mirroring etc.
Network paths/files are not at all a problem, of course.
Actually, I keep the directory for the proe config thingie on a server different from the one providing the user data. That eases maintenance a lot - users may override locally, but only on a per-session base.
Yes, thanks! i didn't know about the config setting to start proe with a tree config file.
Just a final note on the mapkey calling the tree.cfg: In assembly mode i tend to need the parameters showing in the model tree, in part mode I'm usually interested in seeing the feature number and feature id only. I actually have 3 mapkeys to call tree configs. One shows all the parameters (when I'm in an assy) and the other shows just the feature number and feature id (when I'm in a part). The third shows shows the parametes, no features and no annotations. That is more desireable when I just want to see the components in an assy without the visual noise of the features and notes....more like looking at an indented BOM.
The mapkeys reduce the milage on my mouse when flipping between the 3 set ups.
